The connectors used are from the Nitto Hi-Cupla 200 series and are a once touch quick disconnect type. They are very solid and swivel freely.

We have a second hose being delivered shortly. These will be used for all hoses between the compressor and launcher.

These hoses we purchased for as little as $25 each with the fittings., which is excellent value considering one of the female fittings sells for around $30 each.
